The home of 90-year-old Chu Van Them


An hour and a half drive south of Hanoi lies La Ninth Bind, a town surrounded by the Crest Mountains and lush valleys that offer plenty of rocky scenery and rice terraces. The pastoral town welcomes authentic meetings with locals who are delighted to meet the new tourists. I cycled through the small streets of the town and was invited into the home of two 80 and 90-year-old brothers Chu Van Thus and Chu Van Them, who are still living together from the day they were born in a house that’s been their family’s for generations. The direct encounter with the locals strengthens the intensity of the visit and gives the opportunity to get to know the population outside of the usual tourist path.
